Antique French Fashion Doll Antique Doll Dress French Doll Wig Tri Color Eyes:
Here is another pretty Antique French Fashion doll for sale. She is about 14 1/2 maybe a little taller. Her leather body is very sturdy condition and leaking areas. There are about 3 areas that have been sewn or repaired in the leather. Her pierced ear holes go into her head and her earrings are very old still with a gold color and black beads as well as pink color beads. On one side the black bead is missing. She is wearing an Antique silk gown with a matching fabric black silk belt that has an antique bucket in the front. This gown has a few holes in it but nothing major and no tears. Really a beautiful silk soft fabric and fabulous pattern design as well as the color. Her shoes are new and she is wearing a newer wig with a label inside that reads - 100 % Cheveux Naturels made in France. She does not have a pate but the wig is roomy enough to add one if you want. She has been wearing this wig for years and as you can see it fits her perfectly. As the pictures show she has a hairline crack on right side forehead from top going down through eyebrow ending on eyelid. It is all stable because the original plaster that holds her eyes in place is also behind this hairline. She has a swivel head but in the front on the left side of her shoulder plate there is also a very very fine hairline in the bisque going up about 1/2 inch .Ihave owned this doll for over 35 years and it is the same size as when I purchased her. In back of her head the number 2 is inscribed in the bisque. She also has flat rare tri color glass eyes. She is an early made french fashion doll with very very pale pressed bisque head. On the left side of her face there are 2 very faint paint strokes on the cheek near her nose. Please remember my pictures are up close and magnified to show everything but while she is displayed in your cabinet theses issues will not be noticeable because her face is so small and there is the viewing distance.This is a final sale sale with no returns , no credits and no refunds. She is being sold in used condition and as is. She was made about 1860-1870 so that makes her about 143 -153 years old. She not a usual french fashion doll seen available for sale. I enjoy getting questions. I will pack her in a box with a lot of protection. Per guidelines I have to send her with insurance and I will have to get 2 signed receipts from the buyer upon receiving her.On Jun-20-13 at 07:09:36 PDT, seller added the following information:
In reviewing the pictures in this ad I have just noticed another very tight hairline /crack in the bisque on her other eyebrow area. I did not notice it when looking at the doll and my camera has detected it. In the close up picture on her neck there is a black color hair and not a crack in her neck bisque. I have cleaned away this fabric hair and her neck is has no damage.On Jun-24-13 at 18:06:41 PDT, seller added the following information:
Last picture of doll wearing beige striped dress and dark curly mohair wig is to give you an idea of how she looks with a different color wig on and different color/ style dress. This dark mohair wig and beige dress are not included in this sale.
